Fixing Bad White Balance in Final Cut Pro

The Color Corrector 3 Way is a great way to reset your white levels on a clip that was shot with poor white balance. You will find the Color Corrector 3 Way filter in Video Filters, in the Color Correction category. After applying the filter to a clip, and loading the clip into the viewer, you will open the Color Corrector 3 Way tab. To repair a bad white balance all you need to do is click the Select Auto-balance Color button. This will turn your cursor into an eye dropper when over top of the Canvas. All you need to do now is click on a portion of the clip in the Canvas that should be a perfect white. This will rebalance the white values within the clip. This can be a very quick and easy way to make a big improvement to a clip that was shot with a bad white balance.
